To make a Wisconsin child support determination, a court will consider how many overnights a child has with the non-residential parent. For joint custody arrangements, the amount paid depends on the overnights. See example of child support for shared placement.
If a parent has sole custody, the non-custodial parent will be ordered to pay a standard percentage based on the number of dependent children as follows:
- 17% of one child
- 25% for two children
- 29% for three children
- 31% for four children
- and 34% for 5 children
